Welcome!

I would like to welcome all of the Grade 7 and 8 students and families! We are going to have a wonderful year together!

At the beginning of the school year we will take time to get to know each other and feel comfortable in our class learning routines. Our first focus will be in creating a safe, inclusive classroom where everyone feels comfortable in taking risks and sharing their ideas. In order to foster social and emotional awareness we will be working through the lessons in the MindUp Curriculum. This curriculum focuses on the emotional and psychological well-being of students. Another focus will be on growing our Growth Mindset in order to increase resiliency, motivation and overall achievement.

The curriculum will be explored in depth through student-led inquires. I have many exciting projects lined up using various technologies in order to ensure student engagement.


Communication

I will send home regular updates through email to parents/guardians. Families are encouraged to email me directly with any concerns or questions at decloets@hdsb.ca

Students will be creating a class newsletter to be shared with families once a month. All students will have an opportunity to be a part of the newsletter with rotating roles each month (e.g., editor, publisher, reporters, photographers, etc...).

The class calendars are available on the website and on Google Classroom for parents and students to see upcoming events.

Students will be using Google Classroom for most assignments. Resources and links will be shared in the Classroom for students to access at home.
